Joining up data standards is important because it allows us to unlock the immense potential of data to help drive poverty eradication and sustainable development. In recent years, more and more valuable data is becoming available, but much of it can’t be turned into useful information because it is being published in different formats, to different standards or on different platforms.
With our partners Publish What You Fund, we aim to improve how standard-setting bodies, data producers and data users collaborate to make their data interoperable and easily comparable with other data. We do this by exploring how data can be joined up and by bringing stakeholders together to find solutions to common problems.
